Use Multitasking on your iPad​

On your iPad with iOS11 or later, you can use Multitasking to work with two apps at the same time, answer emails while watching a video, switch apps using gestures, and more.

Switch apps using gestures

Use Multitasking gestures on your iPad to quickly see the app switcher, switch to another app or return to the home screen:

  • See the app switcher: In iOS 12, swipe up with one finger from the bottom edge of the screen and hold in the middle of the screen until the app switcher appears. You can also double-click the Home button to see all of your open apps. Swipe right with one finger to find and open a different app.

  • Switch apps: While using an app, swipe left or right with four or five fingers to switch to a previously ​used app. On an iPad Pro 11-inch or iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd generation), swipe along the bottom edge of your screen to switch between previously used apps.

  • Return to the Home screen: In iOS 12, while using an app, swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen. You can also pinch four or five fingers together on the screen to return to the Home screen. 

Use the Dock to work with more apps simultaneously

The Dock lets you instantly open and switch apps from any app you're in. You can even customize the left side of the Dock with your favorite apps. And on the right side, you can see apps that you recently used and apps that are open on your iPhone and Mac.

You can find the Dock at the bottom of the Home screen. To see the Dock while you're using an app, slide 

one finger up from the bottom edge of the screen until the Dock appears, then release. 

To customize the Dock with your favorite apps, touch and hold an app on the Home screen, then immediately drag it to the left side of the Dock.

To remove an app from the Dock, touch and hold an app on the left side of the Dock, then immediately drag it off.
